System spec?

Have you got the latest Graphic card drivers?

  ninky4 09:27 26 Jan 2008

yes I have all the latest drivers, it is only on certain games when this happens

System details and game details are required.

As said,system specs are required to help further ?

Check you have the requriements to run the games in question,ie enough ram,cpu is up to the task and graphics card that can run the games.

Also what is the os,Vista/xp etc...if you do not know the machine specs,

Windows key and pausebreak together and post those details,this will give us the basic specs.We need you to run something like Belarc or SIW to determine other specs.

Please post as much info as possible.

Thankyou everyone for taking the time to help. I have found the problem though how it happened I have not a clue, when I looked in device manager there were two graphics cards, the one I have and a secondary one so I took that out and everything works fine now, again many thanks what would we do without help on here
